Video ranked No1 on Google with no backlinks. How is it possible?

I have been looking at one niche for the past few days. There were no Youtube videos on first 3 pages of Google, but few websites targeting the niche with quite a few of backlinks. Then, this morning i ran Google searche on the keyword again and bam, there is a YouTube video on the first place.

Ran a search on video URL to see backlinks, nothing. The search only returned this video. Then I did a backlink search on Ahrefs.com, again nothing.

The video was uploaded a week ago, and has few thousand views, some likes and comments.

So the question is - How is it possible? There are so many posts on this forum about the importance of backlinks, and here is this video with no backlinks and ranked No1 on Google. It is not No1 on YouTube btw.

There are plenty of Youtube videos related to this niche, but only one video on first 3 pages of Google.

Any ideas or am I missing something here?
Latest Thanks - View all

Youtube videos tends to rank faster then websites, maybe it's a google dance or may be it's because of the HR views.

It cant be a google dance or anything because I just found a niche that is highly competitive and one video is ranking on first position can you believe that. Keyword has 40k searches and video is totally new few days old has 2000 views and some likes. And there is no backlinks on it. I have been watching this video ranking from last week and still it is on 1st position. Totally Strange for me.

I have at least 5 video's that are ranked number 1 on google and have been for a few months, without any backlinks. 3 of the 5 are not even on the first page of youtube. Never could work out why. They dont have HR views and only a few comments each, in fact the only thing giving them any authority at all is the age, they were all created about 5 - 6 months ago.

And how saturated and popular are your niches for those 5 videos? The one I am talking about has 40k+ searches right now and is quite saturated, and the video is only up for about the week, so no age authority here.

Is there a way to find those, because google shows nothing?

Put the link to ahrefs.com and you will see how many backlinks/social signals it has.

I'd probably never share with you guys, but buy thousands of Pinterest shares (which is what I give 1k+ of to all my customers) and have the board you're pinning to the main keyword.

Bam.

Thanks for explanation, but I know what social signals are, although don't know enough about them to be able to find them. Always assumed that those should be visible in google, that's why was asking about a way to find those. Did Facebook searh, and found nothing related to this viedeo btw. Then did search on Twitted and found only one tweet saying that someone liked this video, that's all.
